Brazil, you say? They know how to play football over there, don't they? But it's a long way for one so middle aged as I to travel.

So instead, I shall slouch into my leather armchair and view the tournament from this side of the Atlantic. I shall try and watch every game and will definitely make wildly inaccurate predictions too.

I do solemnly vow to give you a real sense of what it's like to not be at the World Cup. This is the blog where all the colour and atmosphere and passion of watching the world's greatest sporting tournament on a wall mounted widescreen really comes to life.

Nigeria 1-0 Bosnia Herzegovina

The Super Eagles sent BH packing in controversial circumstances. Dzeko was not offside. Odemwingie nutmeg the BH GK seven minutes later. I never saw any of this, for this was an 11pm kick off and the follower of this blog knows the score when it comes to kick offs that late.
